Cat’s eye effect only comes in cabochon gemstones of certain varites. There are many fake (man-made glass) cat’s eye stone in the market/trade which can easily be identified with “honeycomb effect”. When seen through microscope or 10x lens at the gridle (just where the semi-dome ends) of a stone, if it resembles honeycomb effect, then the stone is a fake (glass) stone.
